I’m actively looking in the DL-R area of Dublin at the moment in the Trading up type range. Definitely something is afoot. A lot of houses which are struggling to attract offers or to close. Quite a lot of price drops too. That being said - if something is of a good quality in a good location it can achieve prices of 5-10% above asking quite quickly.
I would say houses that require a reasonable amount of work are the slowest to move. Perhaps that reflects the fact that buyers know that doing that work is quite difficult now due to the building industry operating at capacity.
Also - I would say that a lot of the traditional Semi-D type houses from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s etc don’t have the sort of open-plan kitchen layout that the market really likes now. Houses that have extended or renovated to include that kind of detail seem to move very quickly.
